Birthday girl celebrates 90th

SHE has just turned 90, but proving you're only as old as you feel, Betty Boland, of Evans Head, can still touch her toes!

As a Physical Culture (Physi) devotee for many years, Mrs Boland competed and won the state title before moving to Evans Head 40 years ago with husband Ken.

Recently about 20 people from as far as Mackay, Queensland, Sydney and the Central Coast gathered to celebrate her 90th birthday, along with her family of two sons, Dennis and Colin, five grandsons and three great grandchildren.

Mrs Boland has many lovely local friends who have been looking after her, especially after Ken's passing three years ago.
